ECHO – #2 Paradise in a Dream

Home 9 Composers 9 Emily Green 9 ECHO – #2 Paradise in a Dream


Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright

As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.

O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter sweet, 

Whose wakening should have been in Paradise, 
Where souls brimfull of love abide and meet; 

Where thirsting longing eyes

Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live 

My very life again though cold in death: 
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give 

Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:

Speak low, lean low
As long ago, my love, how long ago.
